First Drabble (no prompt)

I came up with the idea of Drabbling Daily after writing this, so there's no prompt. Enjoy!

The Morning After

I wake up to a throbbing head. Part of it is the hangover, but that’s not all. There’s a sharper pain, on the surface, half hidden in dull numbness.

I try to remember last night. Booze, a girl, check-in at this cheap motel. I look, but there’s no sign of the girl.

As I stand up, I realize that’s not entirely true. There’s an unexpected weight hanging from my chest, and a disconcerting absence between my legs. Already knowing what I’ll find, I reach up and touch the fresh stitches on my head.

Damn. Identity theft is getting ridiculous.
